As a stay-at-home mommy I am feeling very isolated and wondering if anyone knows of a forum to talk about SAH mommy stuff. I am still breastfeeding at 15 1/2 months but have zero support with my daughter and now I am starting to get overwhelmed. My husband works many hours to try to support us on one income while neither one of our families ever stop by to see my daughter let alone give us a hand. I love being a stay-at-home mommy but I never have 5 minutes to myself to clear my head or even shower half the time...especially with her being fussy with her molars coming in. Our financial situation isn't the greatest so I have been trying to work on starting a photography business PT (I have worked as a 2nd photographer at weddings for a few years now and have been building my professional gear over the years). However, with no time to myself, that is only a dream. I see other aquaintances starting up their businesses while I can only sit on the sidelines and watch. How do you enjoy being a stay-at-home mommy, keep up with all the housework, all laundry, all cooking, all grocery shopping, feeding the baby all meals, giving the baby all baths, changing every single diaper and being the only person up with the baby all night while she is fussy and have the energy to enjoy her? I am sorry if I am ranting because I am totally worn out...I appreciate being home with her...it is just sad when you feel like you are screaming for help from friends and family and no one hears you. If I had 1 hour to myself every 2 weeks I think I could at least recharge my batteries a bit. Anyone else feel like this? Sometimes I feel like I am being punished for staying home with her and it is breaking my heart but she means the world to me and I just want to find a balance. I know I can bring money into the house (doing photography PT on weekends) while handling the baby and everything else FT during the week if only I was allowed a break now and then to think straight.
